Starting January 1st, 'NERIT Sports' will be relaunched as 'NERIT plus'. To start off with, it will consist of content from ERT's historical archives. They plan to implement three daily programing blocks:

 

  • NERIT Kids will focus on children programing, both foreign and Greek.
  • NERIT Life will be the largest block, focusing on local programing, talk shows, culture centric shows, Greek and foreign historical documentaries, travel and ecological content, tourism centric shows, woman and entertainment centric shows, etc.
  • NERIT Sports will focus on sports programing.

You can view the press release and the week's programing at the following link: http://www.typologies.gr/2014/12/31/%CE%BD%CE%AD%CE%BF-%CE%BA%CE%B1%CE%BD%CE%AC%CE%BB%CE%B9-%CE%BC%CE%B5-%CE%B5%CF%80%CE%B1%CE%BD%CE%B1%CE%BB%CE%AE%CF%88%CE%B5%CE%B9%CF%82-%CE%B1%CF%80%CF%8C-%CF%84%CE%B7-%CE%BD%CE%B5%CF%81%CE%B9%CF%84/

 

 

 

This whole launch and press release seem very rushed considering the press release was just issued the night before the launch and there is no logo or programing info on their website yet. Maybe it has to do with the looming upcoming snap elections, and the promise by SYRIZA to bring ERT back?

Additionally, NERIT HD has switched over to showing programing from NERIT1. Up until now it was broadcasting NERIT Sport's programing.

So whats the difference between this one and Sports Plus, which has been approved for Canada by the CRTC and will be broadcast by OTN. I'm guessing in the next 2-3 months it should pop up on at least Bell Fibe and maybe Rogers, but Nerit Plus vs Sports Plus what the dif? besides the owners?

No connection at all between the two. They are both sports channels, but NERIT Sports was a channel NERIT launched to cover the World Cup games over the summer. They kept it around with mostly replays of sports content they had in their historical archives until the switch over now to NERIT plus. The new NERIT plus is no longer primarily sports oriented.

 

SportPlus is a satellite channel by (presumably) different owners that have acquired the international broadcasting rights for Greek Superleague and Basketleague games that ERT once had in its possession. They too broadcast replay sports content when there are no live matches, but it appears their historic content comes from NOVA Greece.

      From ERT to NERIT back to a new ERT. I figured this deserved its own new thread.
       
      The latest news is that the new SYRIZA government plans to establish yet another new broadcaster that will replace NERIT. The bill for the new national broadcaster is expected to be submitted to parliament within a month. The new broadcaster will use the ERT acronym, but will not be a continuation of the old ERT. Instead the new ERT is being preliminarily called "Ethniki Radiofonia Tileorasi" instead of the old "Elliniki Radiofonia Tileorasi". Their aim is to build a "new ERT" from scratch, that will not be controlled by the government and will be free of scandalous contracts and spending. They also plan to resume the satellite link to the Greek Diaspora as soon as possible. The fee tacked onto the electricity bills will remain, and former ERT employees will be rehired.
       
      It remains to be seen how the old ERT union will respond when all is said and done. They had been demanding for a 100% re-establishment of the old ERT as it was before it was pulled off the air, and that is what they thought they would get with the new government as soon as it was elected. Meanwhile police have been stationed by the government at the old ERT headquarters following a demonstration by the ERT union.....
       
      I'm not sure what the point is of creating yet another new broadcaster from scratch. It seems like a waste of public funds when they could easily just restructure NERIT and achieve their goals. In fact, aside from rehiring all former employees, this sounds like a rehash of the original NERIT idea, just with hopes of much better execution. I guess their egos won't let them work on something the previous government established and something they vilified since inception......

      I figured I should make a new thread on NERIT and separate it from discussions on the former ERT.
       
      It looks like things are slowly moving forward for NERIT, the board of directors and president were chosen. (For a term of one year) The goal is to start building NERIT "from scratch" and launch sometime in the beginning of 2014. The new board is also supposed to meet with the EBU next week to get the ball rolling on their membership and any help they can offer in launching NERIT.
